Program for Education in Advanced Kidney Disease (PEAK)
Rogosin’s Program for Education and counseling in Advanced Kidney Disease (the PEAK program) is a comprehensive program to treat patients whose kidney disease has progressed. PEAK is designed to help patients learn how they can best take care of themselves both now and in the future. A large group of experienced specialists are dedicated to the patients’ physical and emotional well-being.
Every patient is offered a full range of services. All patients are seen by a specialist in chronic kidney disease, a nurse educator, a nutritionist, and a social worker. The PEAK team utilizes data science techniques and state-of-the-art data analytics to identify at risk patients for earlier interventions and avoid unnecessary medical complications. We also offer peer to peer conversations so that our patients can speak to other patients with similar experiences. In addition, there is a PEAK psychologist who is able to meet with patients either one time or on a continual basis.
At the appropriate time, PEAK can make referrals to kidney transplantation and to advanced kidney dialysis options like home dialysis training. Transplantation and dialysis is not for everyone, and we have a program for those patients who choose to continue with close medical supervision.
Throughout, the PEAK team actively communicates with patients’ nephrologists and works to help patients navigate what is often a very complex medical system. Our team approach helps our valued patients ensure that an appropriate, personalized treatment plan is in place and is effectively carried out.
PEAK acknowledges the difficulty of living with kidney disease and is ready to help patients stay active, live independently and take control of their health.
